    Weak Brakes

    Agreed on trying a gravity bleed. I had an issue after replacing a caliper where my brake and ABS lights were on, and I had NO pedal pressure. No amount of "standard" bleeding seemed to help. I ended up gravity bleeding in order, and the issue sorted itself out.

    ABS? Who else hates that crap?!

    MT's and hard pack or ice DO NOT mix. You may as well be rolling on marbles.

    pump fuse blows then rough idle

    Your issue could be the electrical connections on top of the sending unit at the fuel tank. They get corroded over the years, and start to short out. I had to replace the sending unit on both of my Pathfinders because of this issue. There should be an access panel for it under the carpet in the cargo area.

    anybody change a distributor lately

    I did one in my X a few months back. Rockauto even with shipping and duty was cheaper than I could get it anywhere in Canada.

    Modding an ARB Bumper, Advice?

    The WD21 ARB bumper doesn't have separate mounts. They're integrated into the bumper. That said, I, along with a few others, successfully relocated their ARB bumpers after a body lift, so fabbing up a couple of mounts should be relatively easy. The big thing is to tie into the frame at 2 points, in order to distribute the load if you're going to winch or recover using the bumper. Otherwise, it can "peel" down if it's only mounted low. This thread has a bunch of pics of the mounts for the WD21 ARB. http://www.nissanpathfinders.net/forum/topic/26160-arb-pictures/?p=480700&hl=%20arb%20%20bumper&fromsearch=1

    Adieu, Adios, Ciao, Good bye...

    I've merged the 2 topics, and moved the 1 left into the general forums. As for leaving, don't bother. If you enjoy it here, stick around, offer help, and participate like you always have. Pathfinder ownership isn't a prerequisite......at least......that's what I keep telling myself.

    Home Remodeling

    I feel so much better about EVERY project I've ever done. Even the cheapest, quickest, thrown together crap....beats this hands down!

    Home Remodeling

    I didn't have an electrician inspect it, however, I did get a full lesson on running circuits from a friend who is an electrician. He did my service upgrade (100a to 200a service) and secondary panel in my garage, as well as a bunch of outlets and lights in the garage. I assisted him on the job so I was confident when it came time to run the new wiring. I ran it right back to the panel, on a separate circuit, with a separate breaker, so there's very little to go wrong.

    Home Remodeling

    I recently re-did our family room in our house. Basically, there was an old wood burning fireplace, and brick mantle that looked like crap, as well as flooring that was in desperate need of replacement. I don't have any before pictures, but here's some in progress, and others showing the finished product. I ended up just walling off the fireplace, as we have no use for one at this time. If I want to install a gas fireplace later on, I'll be able to easily cut out the section of wall I made. I ran some wiring for my TV and AV equipment, as well as ran an ABS conduit in the wall so all the wires would be hidden. It makes snaking cables really easy. Anyways, on to some pics. After removing carpet and the mantle. Note the residue from the rubber underpad stuck to the floor. Took hours to scrape it off. New framing showing new outlets as well as cable wire behind the wall. I also ran speaker wire for my surround speakers under the floor Drywalled and mudded. You can see a network cable, speaker wires, and cable wire coming out of the wall. Hardwood flooring going in. Took me about a day and a half all told for flooring. Finished flooring with trim in the hallway, going into the family room TV hung, and furniture in place on new wall As the room stands currently, with all the boy's stuff in there.
  10. I was attempting to add humour to the thread, while I thought of a concise and professional response. It didn't work. As it turns out, I think you covered the response to Tungsten better than I would have.

    Help Identify Xterra Upper Control Arms (UCA)

    It's funny, once you get to a certain level of build (basically, all bolt on stuff, no SAS or anything REALLY cool) they all start to look the same. There's a bunch in my club that are all built very similar.

    Yeah, definitely looks like the gussets were modified and/or changed. There's no zerks in the ones I posted either.

    Beware of Furnature!

    I continuously ask that question and get nothing but the same look Ryan gets from his Entertainment Center.
